Need new brakes, don't want BBK

First time posting, but have been reading the forum for about a year. I am looking to put some new brakes on my E-46 but don't want to spend the $'s for a BBK as mine is a daily driver, not a track car. Does anyone have advice on what non-EOM manufacturers to stay away from, or have any good experiences to share. Looking for new rotors and pads all the way around.
Thanks

Just buy the same brakes BMW used for the Z4 M and M3 CSL. A little bigger rotors, drilled, and definitely more bite. Turner Motorsports sells a kit to install them.

Thanks for the info. Ended up not going with the CSL rotors, Turner had a full kit with the European M3 drilled rotors, pads, and braided lines for a reasonable price. For now the budget will only support small mods, CSL were 2x the price for all 4 wheels.
